Special order

I managed to finish a special order - despite the fact that I still have fever...

It is a wedding card for my neighbours. They secretly got married on his mother's deck outside of the summer house. His mother was cleaning the lingonberries that she had picked when suddenly a priest showed up. The whole family - their 2 sons and 1 daughter and his sister with family were speachless.... So it was just as they wanted.

However - his mother asked me to make a special card for them from her - and she wanted a large one.

I did not want to ruin the lovely green paper (purchased in Chicago) with the text Mr and Mrs. The word "Kärlek" means love in Swedish. The heart is drawn by me and I wanted it to look like lingonberries + I covered them in clear mini-glass pearls (hope you can see that).

I made the deck as well, since I decided to make a pop-up card with the hänglar & stänglar stamps The couple is highlighted with some stickles of course - to make it more festive ;-)

The text - a day to remember....from SU (lying on the deck - wanted to make a special slip where she could write her on greeting on)

The couple is coloured with SU markers on aquarell paper. Papers, ribbon, pearls and flowers from stash & from SU.

Hope she will like it!

Now I will go back to bed.....
